Ways to Not Feeling Lonely When You Are Single

By the way, no one should ever have to 'get permission' to do anything. If you do, you may want to become single again because this isn't a sign of a healthy relationship. You're not in a romantic relationship; you're in a child/parent relationship. You shouldn't have to get permission to volunteer, play baseball/softball, golf, take a class, or do whatever it is you like to do. Being single is probably looking better to you!

Ways to Not Feeling Lonely When You Are Single

Join groups.
You can find various groups on Yahoo! Groups, Google, and Meetup.com. You can find hiking groups, spiritual groups, sports groups, and anything else you can imagine. This is a great way to meet new people. And yes, you could potentially meet Mr. or Ms. Right.

Traveling is a wonderful experience. You'll meet people from all over the world and learn about different cultures. If traveling alone intimidates you, sign up for a group tour. This is great way to become a confident traveler while traveling on your own, yet in the company of other people. Once you become confident enough to travel by yourself, get out there and enjoy solo travel. It can be very liberating!

Take classes.
When's the last time you took a class for fun? If you've always had a passion for painting, sign up for an art class. If you always wanted to learn how to draw, sign up for a drawing class. Check out your local community college and or adult education center. Enroll today and learn something new tomorrow!

What's your favorite charitable organization? Peruse volunteer websites and find an organization that could use your help. When you give back, your feelings of loneliness will go away. Also, it's a great way to meet new people who enjoy volunteering like you do.

Go out with your friends or by yourself.
The latter may be difficult for some people to do. However, going out by yourself can be a lot of fun. You're responsible for you and only you. There's no worrying about your friend who seems to always attract the wrong type of guy/girl and then ends up going home with them and then regrets it. You can really enjoy yourself if you embrace it. On the flip side, going out with friends and celebrating your singleness is a blast as well. You won't be alone; you'll be with friends who truly care about you.

Thank God you're single!
Does your sister or brother call you to complain about their spouse? What about your married friends? Are their screaming kids in the background? You could thank God you're single and don't have to put up with the 'not so nice' side of marriage, especially if you marry the wrong person. You don't have to put up with a nagging or intrusive mother-in-law who still baby's her son.

Hint: if marrying a mama's boy isn't for you, make sure you observe the mother/son relationship before you continue the relationship or say, "Yes, I'll marry you." You don't have to worry about where to spend the holidays which could erupt into a major fight if you didn't discuss this BEFORE you got married. Sometimes people think that marriage is a bowl of cherries but this isn't always the case. You won't get along all of the time and will need and want your space. If you have family and friends who are married, observe them at functions. You can learn a lot and be more prepared for marriage than they were.

I never feel lonely although I don't have a boyfriend. Sometimes I even enjoy being alone.
